Summary: Coming from balanced armature earbuds, I found this headphone a rather enjoyable transition.
I own the PIIQ2, Beats Solo HD, and this definitely fits into another category. The overall impression of the MDR-1R is it is very comfortable piece of hardware with a very warm sound signature, you can...
Pros: Strong Bass that doesn't muddle the clarity of music
Summary: these deliver a warm sound, which i prefer. still, sound is quite balanced. clear sound, open soundstage, crisp mids, looks nice, !comfortabe! sounds like what i like. didn't use these outside, so can't comment on isolation.
Summary: I Ventured to buy those headphones fater a massive discount in pre-christmas sales here in mexico, for $178 USD i consider them to be a great buy
The construction of those cans seems to be aluminum and plastic mix, the band is alumnum as well as the ear cups, the joints are plastic, overall they...
Pros: Natural sound, big soundstage, right amount of bassm comfortable
Cons: Jack connection feels flimsy, overall they feel fragile
Summary: I have always known that sony had some good headphones for studios.
But as for the lower models I have heard before, they has not been much above some cheap Koss Porta Pro in the sound.
So yeah I always stayed away from the Sony brand, until recently when I heard some z1000.
Pros: Small and light. Good looking in both versions. Laid back signature with good midbass and forward mids.
Cons: Cable controlls is not the best, also the plastic would be better in metal.

Overall sound impression:
As somewhat a treble head and one that crave for mid-range, I have always found getting suitable portable headphones rather difficult.
Pros: Great vocal performance, especially female vocal. Relaxed, smooth presentation with good speed. Open sounding
Cons: Isolation, Not sheep skin leather, Cable jack problem

Pros: - Excellent design - High-quality sound, S-Master Amp - Versatile connectivity that includes NFC - Good passive sound isolation - Very comfortable
Cons: - Extensive use of plastic in construction - Over-ear design is bulky - Supplied carry pouch offers limited protection
Conclusion: Are the Sony MDR-1R "prestige headphones" worth the £300 asking price on the UK Sony Store? That's arguable. But the £200 price floating around on other major online retailers is far more, er, on the money. Taken in that context and we have heaps of praise for these over-ears.
Pros: Eventually very comfy, great sound, lots of mid-high frequency range 'snap' yet enough bass to deliver a rounded sound, attractive design
Cons: Exposed drivers can touch against ears, bass doesn't rumble as much as the higher-spec versions, not necessarily perfect for on-the-go listening, Sony Store price is too steep, really low frequencies not as impactful as might be expected
